MSA swears in new
By WENDY SHARP
Fifty members of the new Michigan Student
Assembly crowded into the assembly's chambers
-in the Union for a double meeting with the mem-
bers of the outgoing assembly.
At 10:30 p.m., outgoing MSA President Paul
;Josephson handed the ceremonial chamber key to
-his successor, Natural Resources senior Kurt
BEFORE the changeover, however, the old
assembly approved a resolution adopting the
Students Rights Committee's position on the
proposed University code for nonacademic con-
The resolution states that administration action
on the implementation of a code before October
1986 will be considered illegitimate because
students "will not be present or adequately infor-
med about a particular action." The resolution
also states that an accused individual has the right
to be prosecuted by the Ann Arbor criminal justice
system instead of the University in order to avoid
The outgoing assembly also stated its opposition
to a bill in the Michigan Senate, No. 107, which
would empower the Board of Regents to deputize
campus security officers. Currently, the Univer-
sity pays the city of Ann Arbor $500,000 annually
for police protection. The University's Depar-
tment of Public Safety for several years sought to
create its own force, saying that city officers are
often too slow to answer calls and that a full-
fledged campus force would save money in the

Mandea may not get degree

deny that Wallenberg or Mandela
were turned down, saying that the
board never releases the names of
people it considered unless they are
offered the degree, and they accept.
Delgado speculated that the
University may give a degree to
another South African activist such as
Mandela's wife, Winnie Mandela, or
1984 Nobel Peace Prize winner Bishop
But Delgado said that Tutu and
Winnie Mandela may also be unable
to come to Ann Arbor to receive the
honor. Winnie Mandela, he said, could
be denied an exit visa or, if she is
allowed to leaved South Africa, she
might not be allowed to return.
TUTU, WHO spoke in Detroit recen-
tly, could also be denied an exit visa,
particulary after he called for
economic sanctions against South
Africa in a speech last week. The ac-
tion violates South African law.
Delgado said that if the University
gives the degree to another South
African activist, members of FSACC
would not protest, but they would con-
tinue urging that Mandela be honored.
Peter Afflick, a graduate student in
chemical engineering and a member
of FSACC, also said yesterday that
members of FSACC have resumed
staying with the shanty on the Diag.
Students slept in the wooden struc-
ture during a national "Two Weeks of
Action Against Apartheid," but stop-

over the weekend, and Monday mor-

tified man. Students reconstructed it

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS AND
UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
U.S. pressures W. Germany to
apply sanctions against Libya
BONN, West Germany - The United States, citing the bombing of a
West Berlin nightclub frequented by U.S. servicemen, has stepped up
pressure on West Germany to apply wide-ranging sanctions against
Libya, government sources said yesterday.
Washington is demanding that West Germany at the very least
drastically reduce its diplomatic ties to Libya by expelling most Libyan
diplomats from Bonn, the West German sources said.
The Bild newspaper reported the Cabinet today would consider whether
to expel two Bonn-based Libyan diplomats in connection with the Satur-
day bombing, which killed an American serviceman and a Turkish
woman and injured 230 other people, including 64 Americans.
The newspaper also said it had information from "reliable security of-
ficials" that Elamin Abdullah Elamin, a 47-year-old Libyan assigned to
the Libyan Embassy in East Berlin, was under suspicion in the nightclub
Reagan sets U.S.-Soviet talks
WASHINGTON - President Reagan and outgoing Soviet Ambassador
Anatoly Dobrynin yesterday set up a top-level meeting for mid-May to lay
the groundwork for the still unscheduled superpower summit this year.
Secretary of State George Shultz, briefing reporters on the one hour 15
minute Oval Office meeting between Reagan and Dobrynin, said no date '
was set for the president's second summit with Soviet leader Mikhail
Dobrynin's visit to the 'Oval Office was officially a farewell call
marking his return to Moscow after 24 years as ambassador to take up a
top-level Communist Party Central Committee foreign affairs post.
The meeting was scheduled for 15 minutes, but went on for an hour
longer. Shultz said the fact that it was extended "speaks volumes," and
White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the two men had "a lot to
Midland plant to be converted
JACKSON, Mich. - The Consumers Power Co. board of directors
yesterday unanimously backed a plan to resurrect the defunct Midland
nuclear power plant by converting it into a gas-fired electrical generating
The project, the first phase of which would span four years at a cost of
$434 million, was unveiled Monday by Consumers executives.
Immediately following the unanimous board action, Consumers filed a
request with the Public Service Commission to remove a provision in a
1985 rate increase which prevents the company from spending any more
money on the Midland without prior PSC approval.
If the provision is removed, Consumers is expected to seek a rate in-
crease of 25 percent phased in over five years to cover the expense of the
conversion as well as losses on the nuclear plant project. This would sub-
stitute for a pending request seeking a 19 percent increase covering
nuclear plant losses only.
Reagan's bid for Contra aid
gains momentum in Congress
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's bid to provide $100 million in aid
to Nicaragua's Contra rebels has gained momentum in Congress because
the Sandinista government shattered hopes for a negotiated settlement,
Senate Majority Leader Robert Dole said yesterday.
The White House blamed "intransigence" by the leftist Sandinista
government in Managua for the collapse of talks among 13 Latin
American foreign ministers as part of the Contadora peace-making ef-
But three House Democrats who oppose the Contra aid plan said their
just-concluded mission as observers to the Contadora talks in Panama
City, Panama, left them convinced that Latin American nations do not
support U.S. military assistance to the Nicaraguan coun-
"Literally everyone we spoke to, without exception, was clear, strong
and unambiguous in his disapproval of the United States support for the
Contras," Rep. Michael Barnes (D-Md.) chairman of a House Foreign
Dole, however, said the failure of the negotiations should erode op-
position to providing the Contras $70 million in weapons and $30 million in
Lebanese car bomb kills 10
JOUNIEH, Lebanon - A car bomb exploded in the main square of this
Christian port while it was packed with lunch-hour crowds yesterday,
killing at least 10 people and wounding 110.
The blue BMW sedan blew up only 50 yards from offices of President
Amin Gemayel's Phalange Party, set 25 cars ablaze and damaged
buildings 500 yards away. It was the latest in a series of bombings in
Christian areas since mid-January.
In south Lebanon, a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into
a checkpoint manned by Israeli-backed militiamen, killing himself and
wounding six people Lebanon's state radio reported. It was the first
I suicide bombing reported this year in what Israel calls its security zone.
Radios reported 16 people were killed in the Chouf Mountain village of
Bsaba, southeast of Beirut, in a clan feud between Sunni Moslems and
Druse warriors from rival villages.
Prime Minister Rashid Karami, a Sunni Moslem opposed to the
Maronite Catholic president, called the Jounieh bombing "treacherous"
and declared: "It's always the innocent people who are the victims."
Youssef Bitar, the top police explosives expert, said about 165 pounds of
explosives were packed inside the sedan.
